Spring Ornithology 2023

Would you like to know more about our local birds? The Cayuga Bird Club will be offering our popular Spring Ornithology with Steve Kress again in Spring 2023 at Kendal at Ithaca, March 29 through May 17 (full schedule to come). This year it will be on Wednesday nights, from 7 to 9 pm. Dr. Kress’s presentations, illustrated with audio recordings, videos, and gorgeous photos, will focus each week on a group of migratory birds that are at the peak of spring migration, with discussions about bird song, migration, courtship, family life, conservation, attracting birds, and creating a bird-friendly habitat. The level is suitable for beginners, but seasoned birders also will learn many gems of info about birds they thought they knew. Busy on that evening? Classes also will be recorded so you can watch (or review) them at your convenience.

Registration for 2023 will open in December.

Scholarships are available for young people and educators. Details here.
